Wait, who's going to the Pro Bowl?

Brett Favre will not be going to the Pro Bowl. Favre turning down the Pro Bowl is a foregone conclusion every season ... much like Gomer and Donovan McManning losing in the playoffs. So when Favre turned down his invitation, the AFC was quick to put in a suitable replacement.

Kerry Collins. Kerry Freaking Collins.

The NFL's top-rated passer will not be going to the Pro Bowl this season. Maybe Philip Rivers should start losing in his team's first playoff game in order to get some respect. So again, to recap, the quarterbacks going to the Pro Bowl: Gomer (whom the Chargers beat), Jay Cutler (whose team didn't even make the playoffs after losing to the Chargers) and Collins (who would have been eliminated from the playoffs if the Dolphins could have held serve).

Unbelievable.

Rivers was the first alternate for the Pro Bowl, but he's out with a sore knee. It's too bad, b/c watching Rivers and Cutler pretend to get along on the AFC sidelines might have actually given me a reason to watch.

I feel like Gilda Radner. So, uh, never mind.

And let's not forget (because if we do, Gregg Easterbrook will remind us) that the Pro Bowl voting closes ridiculously early, like in week 2 or something, so the Broncs were winning their division at the time. I'm with Greggs on this point - why exactly are the Pro Bowlers (and MLB All-Stars, and NBA, and NHL..) decided waaay before the season is over???
